was not a cliff. the term fiscal cliff was coined by ben bernanke. ben bernanke did not want us or did not want the country to get into the situation of higher taxes -- in large part, i think that would have made his job even harder because the higher taxes would have flowed -- slowed down the economy and there would have been even more pressure on the fed to engage in monetary easing, quantitative easing as it is called. the fed really cannot do all of that much more than it is doing. interest rates are at historic lows. bernanke did not want tax increases, so he was trying to control or affect what was going to be happening on the fiscal side. it was really more of a ramped than a cliff in the sense that the sequester cuts -- we will talk format that i'm sure -- but the automatic cuts that were put in place with the debt ceiling deal of the summer actually would come into play well into the year and some near the end of the year. there was or there is quite a bit of time on that. the tax rate increases, i think very few people actually felt there would be a major income tax increases on 98% o

of individual americans. and we all remember the wonderful comment by ben franklin -- i will paraphrase it -- but essentially ben franklin said that if you give up your liberty to have security, you really don't deserve either. and so we owe it to the hardworking men and women in the intelligence community to work closely with them to find that kind of balance that ben franklin was talking about, and we can help them do it by conducting robust oversight, roy bust oversight -- robust oversight over the work that's being done there so that members of the public can have confidence in the important work being done by the men and women in the intelligence community and confidence that, as we protect our security at a dangerous time, we are also protecting the individual liberties of our people. now, mr. president, the story with respect to this debate really begins in early america when the colonists were famously subjected to a lot of taxes by the british government. the american colonists thought thathat this was unfair because they were not represented in the british parliament, and they

a white friend. a man named ben lundy, eye tern rant editor, traveled around the country, a familiar face for me. and he an anti-slavery newspaper, called the genius of universal emancipation. he would travel most of the newspapers of the day the msm, really avoided the slavery issue. they would report on the politics of it you about they didn't really want to get into it. then lundy weren't and the country, he reported there was a killing. this man was beat. here is how the slaves escaped. here is how the churches have caved in. he did really investigative reporting about slavery, quite unprecedented at the time. anti-slavery sentiment as the movement starts to grow in washington he has enough money to hire a new assistant. he hires a promising young man from boston named william lloyd garrison a and he teaches william lloyd garrison you how to be journalist and report about slavery. benjamin lundy died in obsecurity and william lloyd garrison became one of the most influential abolitionists and journalists of the 19th century. he is a character in this book too. another thing you probab

could get really volatile next week if ben austen this situation. host: cliff talks down to the wire. guest: that's right. majority leader harry reid yesterday said we might not even have time to get a deal even if we reach an agreement, just because of the mechanics of the house and senate and how long it takes to pass legislation. i think if they get a deal, they can somehow get it through. there's no room for error. if they come out of the meeting at the white house today and everyone shrugged their shoulders and says there's no way we can do this, that sends a signal to the american people that we are going over the cliff. you think?doe guest: we're going over the cliff probably. republicans are so dug in on this issue. they got into the house and senate based on their views on taxes, medicare, social security. it is hard to imagine in the next three days they will have some huge concession and reversed the views they have held 20, 30, 40 years. at the same token, maybe they will say what will happen to the economy is so damaging that i have to compromise my position, and that wi
cliff. this fall is really going to hurt. ben white of morning money, dennis, said an excuse to get a bic can keeney on the cover. >> relatively slow news day. what geithner did yesterday is almost as if he is strapping a damsel in distress to the tracks and saying the stakes are rising higher. the markets are taking all this tension, all this sort of -- these things at stake to really make the point perhaps that you have to have those stakes really high for people actually to get a deal. >> on "fast" last night when that letter crossed in the green rooms, we were chatting, we said this sounds like a ploy on the part of the treasury to actually get people to start moving. obviously, there wasn't a market selloff, did have the stumbling blocks and traders on friday said almost better if we did see the markets pull back more to crystallize what this could mean for the u.s. economy to members of congress. we didn't see that. it is a numbers game though in terms of what will happen. we know need 60 votes to clear a fill buster in the senate. seven republicans need to go along a lot of j

caught you talking with senator ben nelson of nebraska. here's what he said. >> if we don't have a deal within the next 24 hours, the question is where do you buy a parachute? looks like we'll be going over the cliff. because the closer we get to the end, the less likely it is you're going to be able to compress an agreement into place that will have enough votes to pass. >> compress is probably a nicer word, ram it through is probably what is going to have to happen in order to -- listen, he just said 24 hours, lisa, to reach an agreement. let's say that happens. maybe some kind of deal at the white house today. what would the mechanics of rushing the deal through congress and getting it passed into law in the next few days, give me those mechanics. >> okay. let's break it down so people are really clear on how this could possibly happen. there are some hurdles that congress would have to get passed, some they set up themselves. the first, the house has a 72-hour rule, they have to have bills printed, 72 hours before they vote on them. but the house has gotten around that before. they
'll have. any impact on mortgages? >> no. no impact on mortgages that is an opinion. ben bernanke says look, i will spend $45 billion each and every month buying mortgages so that the interest rate on mortgages stays very, very low. that is entirely separate from fiscal cliff, totally separate from the debt ceiling crisis. i don't think, patti anne, you will have any impact on mortgage rates despite the crisis that is upon us. patti ann: that is good news for us. stuart varney, thank you as always. >> thank you. gregg: the debt ceiling first established in 1917. since then the debt limit has been raised 102 times, congress voted to raise the debt limit, 11 times since 2001. right now the national debt is over 16 trillion dollars and counting every second. there it is. patti ann: meanwhile hopes of a budget deal in washington and higher home prices are combining to send the price of oil back up again. heating oil rising four cents to more than $3 a gallon. wholesale gasoline rising six cents to $2.78 a gallon. current national average is $3.26. national gas up 4 cents to 3.38 for 1000 cubic
